No Candy Waste

Phyllis Theermann

candydrive2016All Metro-West schools and organizations are invited to join Wellesley Dental Group’s 9th Annual Community Candy Drive to benefit the U.S. ​troops serving overseas. From November 1st to November 9th, Wellesley Dental Group will be collecting candy, as well as handwritten notes and cards, to be sent to American servicemen via non-profit organization CarePacks, along with oral hygiene supplies.

Continuing last years tradition, the competition is bigger than ever! The Wellesley Dental Group will be awarding a grand prize of $1000 to the school PTO that donates the most candy​​​. The winning school will be selected based on the amount of candy donated divided by the number of students in the school, to ensure fair competition. The Candy Drive is open to any school or institution that is interested in participating in this cause.

The Wellesley Dental Group also invites schools and organizations to be a part of their ​Veteran’s Day ​e​vent on November 10th at 10:00 am, at their office in Wellesley. Principals, faculty members, parents, and students (with the permission of their​ parents and​ teachers) are welcome to attend. Local institutions, media and photographers are also invited to participate.​ RSVP requested.​

To schedule a candy drop-off, please call 781-237-9071 or email the Wellesley Dental Group at ​
